The length of time it takes to resolve an injury claim depends on a number of different factors. Each claim is different and there are many issues that may be involved. For instance, there may be a dispute about who was at fault, how severe the injuries are, and whether the other side is willing to resolve the matter. Some simple claims are resolved in a reasonable timeframe, while other more complex cases take much longer.
In the simpler cases, fault may not be an issue and we are able to resolve the claim as soon as the injured party is done with medical treatment or has reached a maximum medical improvement for their injuries. While in the more complex cases, where fault may be at issue, a lawsuit may need to be filed. This may be because the other party claims they did not cause the accident or injury. In that case, it will take much longer to resolve the injury claim. This is because lawsuits take time and Courts don't move very fast.

Our goal is to resolve injury claims as quick as possible while striving to get the maximum amount of damages the injured person deserves and is entitled to.
